Crowns and Bridges
Dental Crowns and Bridges can restore, protect and improve the strength of weak, cracked or decayed teeth.
Porcelain Crowns may be made to match the exact colour, texture and translucency of your natural teeth. They tend to look and feel more natural, it’s almost impossible to tell the difference.
In its most basic sense, a Crown is a restoration that is placed over the affected tooth to amend its shape, size or strength. Dental crowns completely cover the tooth and may be used for aesthetic or functional reasons.
Patients may require a Crown for a number of different reasons. Beneficial to cracked, broken, decayed or diseased teeth. Porcelain Crowns may also be implemented to repair the following oral conditions:
- Excessive grinding of teeth or an improper bite
- An irritable large filling
- Inadequate oral hygiene
- Ageing teeth
- After a Root Canal Treatment
A Bridge literally bridges the space created by missing teeth by anchoring to two crowns on either side of the gap and a natural looking tooth is created to fill it. Dental Bridges are a quick and effective alternative to dental implants, improving your bite and ability to chew.
